Filling the Frying Basket
Using Your Deep Fryer
When frying frozen foods such as French
Fries, remove the frying basket from the
deep fryer before filling with frozen food
because oil will spatter and may cause
burns. You should not fill the frying
basket more than halfway. Clean off any
ice from frozen food prior to frying.
Failure to do so may cause fryer to
overflow when food is placed in oil.
CAUTION: Never turn on the fryer
when the oil pan is empty.
Always ensure the fryer is out of
the reach of children. Always use
fryer on a flat, heat resistant

4. Attach the detachable power cord.
When attaching cord - you will feel a
magnetic pull on the cord when
attaching cord correctly. (Fig. 5)
• Do not fill the frying basket when it is
immersed in oil.
• For optimum results and shorter frying
time, basket should be only 1/2 full.
• The basket has approximately 1.5 lb.
food capacity. It will hold 4-5
average size pieces of chicken.
Frying Food
• Always use the frying basket to fry food.
• Always close the lid cover during frying.
• When the oil is pre-heated, the ready
indicator light will come on, indicating
that the desired temperature is reached.
• Slowly lower the frying basket into the
hot oil. Lowering the frying basket too
quickly can result in the oil overflowing
and splashing.
• Replace the lid carefully.
• It is normal for steam to escape through
the sides of the lid while frying.
• Avoid standing too close to the deep
fryer while it is working.
Warning: When opening the lid cover
after frying, lift up the lid slightly, then
wait to allow steam to escape before
opening the lid completely. Keep face
away from unit to avoid burns caused by
escaping steam.
1. When the oil in the deep fryer has
reached the set temperature, open the
cover, place the frying basket onto the
oil draining hook, put food into the
frying basket and carefully lower the
frying basket into the hot oil. Close the
cover. If you wish, you can set the
60-minute timer to the desired cooking
time. To set the 60-minute timer, turn
the knob clockwise to the desired time.
2. Cook food according to the suggested
recommended cooking chart or until
desired doneness. It is normal for
steam to escape through the sides of
the cover while frying.

container on page 4.)
6. Turn On / Off switch to “On”
position. The power “On” light will
come on.
7. Set the temperature control to the
desired temperature and close the
cover for the oil to pre-heat.
8. When cooking oil reaches desired
setting, the temperature ready light
will turn on.
Note: The temperature ready light will
cycle off and on during the frying
cycle as the unit maintains the
selected temperature.
If you have pre-set a time for the
deep fryer, you will hear a ring when
the cooking time has elapsed.
NOTE: If you are using the 60-minute
timer when you are frying food, please
note that the heating element will NOT
turn off when the timer is up.
4. When cooking is complete, open the
cover carefully to avoid burns
caused by escaping steam. Lift the
frying basket and hook it onto the
oil draining hook to allow the food
to drain.
5. Remove the food from the frying
basket by:
Lifting the frying basket by its
handle and CAREFULLY pouring
food onto a plate covered with
paper towels or into desired
serving utensil.
Using tongs to grasp the food
from the frying basket and placing
into serving utensil.

food to be cooked.
NOTE: Always replace or remove the
Frying basket carefully when
cooking. Oil is very hot and can
cause severe injury.
Frying Tips
• Do not mix different oils or new and old
oil together.
• Replace oil regularly. In general, oil will
be tainted fast when frying food containing
a lot of protein, (such as poultry, meat and
fish). When oil is used mainly to fry
potatoes and is filtered after each use, it
can be used up to 8 to 10 times, but do
not use the same oil for more than 6
• Always replace all oil as soon as it starts
foaming when heated, when color
becomes dark, when it has a rancid smell
or taste or becomes syrupy.
• Make sure that the food to be fried is dry.
• Remove loose ice from frozen food before
• To cook evenly, pieces should be the
same size and thickness.
• Thicker pieces will take longer to cook.
Cleaning Instructions
Warning: Always press the “On/Off”
switch to the “Off” position to stop the
heating element from heating and
remove the plug from the wall socket
before cleaning. Allow the Deep Fryer
and the oil to to cool completely
(approximately 2 hours) before
cleaning. Never immerse the Control
Panel, cord, plug or main enclosure in
water or any other liquid.
Using the Auto-Lift Frying Basket
Your deep fryer is equipped with an autolift frying basket.
To raise the auto-lift frying basket:
• Depress the handle lock button to
unlock the basket handle, lift the basket
up and remove from deep fryer before
placing food to be fried into the fryer
• Depress the handle lock button that is
on the handle of the frying basket to
unlock the handle and the frying basket
will lower into the oil.
• Once the food has finished frying, lift
up the lid cover slowly and wait to allow
the steam to escape before opening
the lid cover completely.
• Depress the handle lock button once
more to unlock the handle and then lift
the frying basket out of the oil.
• Let the fried food drain for a few
seconds and then remove the basket
from the deep fryer.
• Follow the cleaning instructions on
page 3. (Before Using for the First Time)
• Never immerse the control panel, cord
or plug in water or any other liquid.
• Do not place the control panel, cord or
plug in the dishwasher.
• Clean the control panel only with a damp
• The oil container, frying basket, and cover
can be washed in the dishwasher. To
remove the cover, open it and pull
straight up. To replace the cover onto the
unit after cleaning, insert the spring tang
into the spring tang slot in the back of the
main unit.
• Wipe the body of the deep fryer and the
control panel with a damp cloth. Do not
put the body of the deep fryer and the
control panel in the dishwasher.
Suggested Temperature Settings
Detachable Power Cord
The following cooking times reflect only the
approximate time needed to fry one basket
1/2 full. The exact time may be different
depending on actual quantity, personal
cooking preferences, size and thickness of
pieces, etc. In general, use lower settings
for delicate foods (vegetables, fish) and
higher settings for frozen foods, French
Fries and Chicken.
Your Deep Fryer has been specifically
designed with your safety in mind. This
deep fryer has ia unique detachable power
supply cord. This power supply cord cord
is designed to “Break Away” from the fryer
body in the event that the supply cord is
inadvertently pulled. This is intended to
prevent the tipping of the appliance and
hazardous spillage of hot oil.
The female receptacle portion of the power
supply cord is permanently attached to the
rear of the the control panel.
To connect the male power cord plug to
the female receptacle on the appliance,
orient the male plug so that it mates with
the female receptacle. The male plug can
only be inserted one way. If the male plug
will not go into the receptacle on the
appliance, rotate the male plug 180°.
IMPORTANT: Should the male plug
become detached from the appliance
during use, it is important to:
1. Unplug the power cord from the wall
2. Turn off the appliance
at the control panel.
3. Re-attach the power
cord to the appliance.
4. Re-connect to power
5. Turn the appliance
back on.

To Store or Reuse Cooking Oil
• Make sure the Deep Fryer is unplugged
and the oil has cooled (approximately 2
hours) before attempting to clean or
store the Deep Fryer.
• The oil does not need to be changed
after each use. We do not recommend
storing and reusing oil that was used for
frying high protein foods such as
poultry, fish or other meats. When oil is
mainly used to fry potatoes and is
filtered after each use, it can be used 8
to 10 times. However, do not use the
same oil for longer than 6 months.
• To filter the oil, first make sure the oil
has cooled and then empty the oil
from the Oil Container into a storage
container or bottle. (Fig. 6) Wash and
dry the Oil Container and basket. To
reuse, refill the Oil Container with
the oil, pouring the oil through a wire
strainer or paper filter. (Fig. 7)
